Uttarakhand introduces e-stamping
Dehradun: Uttarakhand on Friday became the ninth
state in the country to launch e-stamping which ensures a
secure way of paying non-judicial stamp duty to government.
E-stamping is a part of the e-governance initiative
introduced by the state finance department in association with
the Stock Holding Corporation of India Ltd.
The application was launched by additional chief
secretary (ACS) Alok Kumar Jain.
E-stamping is a computer-based application and a secure
way of paying non-judicial stamp duty to the government.
It has also been introduced in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.
In the first phase, e-stamping will be introduced in the
four districts of Dehra Dun, Haridwar, Udhamsingh Nagar and
The state government has also roped in 45 branches of the
Punjab National Bank (PNB) in these districts through which
e-stamps can be sold.
Describing the initiative as a major achievement in the
ongoing reforms process, Jain said, the move would help the
people in overcoming the tedious physical method of stamping.
